Session 2: Glass in Healthcare (TC04)


Bioactive glasses have been used for bone regeneration since the 1980’s, but recent years have seen a growing interest in applications in a wider field, including wound healing, dental remineralization or targeted delivery of therapeutic ions. This session addresses biomedical glasses composed of silicate, borate, and phosphate compositions, melt-derived, so-gel and mesoporous glasses, as well as preparation of three-dimensional architectures such as scaffolds, particles and fibers, including nanomaterials, coatings and composites.


Topics to be covered include but are not limited to: Compositional design of glasses for biomedical applications; Characterization and modeling of structure and properties; Interactions of glasses with the biological environment; Applications in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering; Glasses and glass-ceramics in dentistry; Hybrids and nanoparticles for therapeutic use; and Commercialization and manufacturing of bioactive glass products.
